My impending deployment to Kuwait was of great concern where the care of my Lab was concerned. Without question, I asked L.B.D. Pet Care to consider caring for Murphy. Over the course of a year prior, Adelaide and I created a special Deployment Contract for Care to meet all of Murphy's foreseen and unforeseen needs. He was in her care for 9 months during my training, deployment and eventually during my leave. I felt so much more at ease knowing he was with her. I received pictures, updates, videos, etc.. He even had his own Instagram page for all of my friends and family to see. It's no exaggeration when I say she treated Murphy as her own. He went everywhere she could take him, he went to work with her, had his own "job" which is important for his breed, he had pool parties, playdates, a birthday party at Roosevelt Island, he made new friends, tried new things and she found that he had allergies which I never knew. The care Adelaide gave Murphy surpassed my expectations. When I returned, my boy looked better than when I'd left him. It was obvious he'd been cared for emotionally, physically and well... in every way. Murphy was crazy about her before and now they have a bond that makes him howl when he sees her. They are truly in love. I am so grateful....and that's why I'm a member!
